Afghanistan's National Security Council (NSC) Tuesday urged the United Nations to delist 47 other Afghans from its sanctions list
NSC in a press release said that it has presented the names of 47 Afghans who are in the United Nations sanctions list to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the ministry will hand it over to the UN.
The decision is made in an effort to implement the results of the National Peace Jirga that was held in Kabul on the 20th of June this year.
Providing conditions for peace talks with the Taliban and finding an ultimate political solution for crisis in Afghanistan were the focal points discussed in the Jirga.
The United Nations had recently removed the names of 10 Taliban members and 14 others linked with al-Qaeda, from its sanctions list.
The decision is made as the Afghan President, Hamid Karzai had previously asked for such a move in order to ease reconciliation talks with insurgents.
The UN has always emphasised on renouncing violence and any links with al-Qaeda and accepting the Afghan constitution as the main conditions to release Taliban and al-Qaeda members from an asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.
The United Nation's blacklist includes names of about 500 individuals allegedly linked to the Taliban and al-Qaeda.
